A variety of display formats for simple operation

Just as with previous Nikon software applications, this application offers a number of display formats developed with consideration for flexible operation. With combination display, thumbnails can be displayed above, below, to the right, or to the left of the image area.
Display of just two or four images is also possible to compare images for easy selection of the one most desired.
In addition, display to compare a RAW image before and after adjustments have been applied is available.

A new file management system for nimble handling of images

Until now, Nikon has used a file format that saved adjustments directly to NEF and NRW files. However, adoption of a sidecar format that saves adjustments to a separate file preserves RAW files in their original, post-capture state as non-destructive files.
In addition, sidecar format makes it easy to simultaneously apply adjustments to multiple files.
